The rooms are incredibly small. The ocean view room, 3rd floor, backed up to an apartment bldg. We were immediately intriduced to the tenants fighting and screaming. The rooms were outdated and rundown for $335 per night. Would not rebook.

I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay and that the neighbors had such an impact on your experience. Our rooms were updated earlier this year.

We liked the location, the breakfast, view from roof top deck, cleanliness, air conditioning, staff, secure. A little irritating to find the front desk empty at different times during business hours when we needed something. A sign said someone was on site and gave a phone number, but it always went to voicemail. Overall a great place that worked well for our stay. Would stay again.

Staff were very helpful and provided excellent service. Hotel was nice and clean. The only two issues were that walls were thin so you could clearly hear your neighbors. Our room was very small and if you are a big person (or over 200 lb) you would not fit in the shower. Make sure you ask for a room with a larger shower or inspect it right away.

Great Central Location for 4th of July

Aurora is a modern but lovely hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful in every way. They have many delicious choices for their complimentary breakfast. Their roof deck was fabulous for watching the 4th of July fireworks!!!

Weekend Getaway

Pros: Great location, very clean and modern facility. Staff was very helpful and really helped to make our stay enjoyable.
Location: All of Avalon is just a short walk away, hotel has great views of Avalon.
My wife and I stayed here for our weekend getaway and we enjoyed our visit very much. This hotel has everything you would expect at this price including a convenient location and comfortable, well appointed rooms. But what made our stay here special was the way the staff went out of their way to do the little things to make our visit memorable. We arrived a couple of hours early and hoped that the hotel would store our luggage until check in but were surprised when we were told our room was ready and we could go ahead and check in! The staff also were very knowledgeable and helpful as we planned our activities and dining, all of their recommendations were spot on! Our room had a nice balcony with a bay view and we also enjoyed the wine and cheese service on the spacious rooftop deck, also with a great view of Avalon and the bay. Then when checking out the staff arranged for our luggage to be sent and stored at the departure pier, saving us the time and effort and leaving us additional leisure time! I highly recommend this hotel!
